After studying drawing and painting at Bournville School of Art, specialising in life drawing and history of art Paul set out on a career within the printing industry, managing to combine this with an ever-developing style of work in both fine art and illustration, selling and exhibiting his work at regular intervals.
It wasn’t until the autumn of 1997 that Paul turned professional. He held a major one-man retrospective exhibition in the summer of 1998 entitled ‘All in a Life’s Work’, which was a personal selection of paintings representing his artistic journey.
Growing up in Birmingham in the sixties and seventies has given Paul many memories to draw upon but he is constantly also pushing himself in new and exciting directions. As well his drawing and painting he also lectures art to special needs students based within the community. This is a challenging and rewarding addition to his busy life and a chance for him to give something back.
“Art is my life. I feel that I am on a journey, a crusade creating new and exciting images, with diverse influences.”
